Birth & Childhood
Prince Jackson was born Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. on February 13, 1997, in Los Angeles, California. There are many speculations regarding the biological father of Prince. Many sources say that Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson’s dermatologist, donated his sperms to Prince’s surrogate mother, Debbie Rowe. If this is true, then Prince is of mixed ancestry. While Debbie is of Australian, French and English origin, Arnold is of Dutch and German origin.
Prince was raised along with his siblings Paris and Blanket in their multi-billion estate, Neverland. The estate is so huge that it consists of an amusement park. As a kid, Prince hardly left the estate as he spent most of his childhood days within the walls of the estate. Prince and his siblings had six nannies and six nurses who were working round the clock to take care of them. Later, Prince and his siblings were raised by Grace Rwaramba who was hired by Michael Jackson himself.
Prince lived in an extremely protective environment. In fact, all the items that he used were thrown away after a single use. Late Elizabeth Taylor was Prince’s Godmother. In 2015, Prince graduated from The Buckley School, California. He then attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
